Big News!!! Part 2

Well, Saturday Baby Mama texted and said she felt horrible, she had been vomiting all day, couldn't hold down anything and was just plain crummy feeling! So, we talked a few times, Sean advised, and seeing as she couldn't keep anything down or otherwise, he suggested transdermal phenergan (stop puking meds, you rub on your wrists). Well, that has to be made at a compounding pharmacy, and none were open on a Saturday, so she decided she needed to go to the hospital, which I supported (obviously!!). We ended up talking to her OB who said to go in to the Labor & Delivery unit where she would be having the baby, they would admit her give her fluids, and some meds IV. They were fabulous, we had sweet nurses who took great care of her and some cool things happened.

First, for me personally, Baby Mama was being asked all kinds of questions about the baby, and she referred them all to me, as those would be my choices! That was very special for me and made the whole situation seem even more real.

Secondly, there was an exciting opportunity for Sean and I both (who wasn't there with us, he was helping friends 'move'). I'll give you the low down...

We are friends with Baby Mama's OB, which is how we got in contact with her in the first place (maybe I need another entry just about that, maybe later). So, OB is texting me...

OB: I'm coming up there in a little while...

Me: Ok, but you don't have to do that

OB: What? Come up there? I'm anxious to see yall but I guess I can wait til Wednesday. :) I don't think she needs to stay...

Me: I don't want you to get out just to come up here, but we can't wait to find out what the baby is!!!

OB: I could scan if I came...:)

Me: We would let you!!!

Baby Mama: (poor thing half asleep in phenergan) that would be so sweet since Sean won't get to be there on Wednesday (very slowly, little doze)...I'm so excited!

Anyhow, needless to say, we got Sean's happy self up there and OB came and did the scan, and the machine wouldn't print, though we took pictures on my iphone (I'm too unsavvy to get them up here!!). The fact that Sean actually got to be there and then tell our friends was so exciting and special! We will never forget that and we love OB for doing that for us, and Baby Mama for agreeing, being so excited in her haze, and for pointing out before I even said it that it would allow Sean to be there when we found out! See why we love her!!!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you all want to know what we're having....

It's a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
